Returned Cheques in Sharjah


There is a new rule procedure announced in Sharjah Buhaira Police Station
If there is a criminal complaint filed against you in Sharjah Police Station with subject of the returned cheque with amount of above AED 50,000/- ;

The police has no more authority nor power to bail the accused or release him by bail –

The accused will be sent to the jail until his file is transferred to the judge in court and decided about his matter within same day. However it’s subject to the availability of the judge, his opinion or the public holidays.

We were informed that the same rules have implemented in Dubai too but as a lawyer, I have only faced it in Sharjah Buhaira police station few days ago.
